Host Jamika Pessoa makes a Glazed Donut with sloppy joe, sweet and savory. Prepared with a pound of ground beef, diced onion, and slopy joe sauce. Sauce is made with 1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp of Djon Mustard, 2 tbsp of brown sugar, 1 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of chili powder, between the chili and bbq family, 1/2 black pepper, and a pinch of salt. Finished off with a cup of ketchup, onions are mixed in with ground beef first and then sauce is added to marinate and simmer together. One complete sloppy joe is now added to glaze donut that is sliced into two halves, slice of cheese is added as the blanket to keep sandwhich from being as messy, as seen on Food Network's Lets Eat, Season 1.

  1. Coat a large skillet or Dutch oven with vegetable oil. Cook the ground beef over medium heat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon, until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the onions and bell peppers and cook until the onions are translucent and just beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder and black pepper in a small bowl. Add the sauce to the ground beef and mix well.
  3. Lower the temperature and let the ground beef simmer for 20 minutes with the lid on. Taste and adjust seasoning. Stir in the butter and remove from heat. (See Cook's Note.)
  4. To assemble, lay a slice of Cheddar on the bottom half of each doughnut. Spoon sloppy joe mixture over the cheese, then cover with the top half of each doughnut. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note

Sloppy joes taste better the next day, so make a day in advance.
